An all-new Mac & Barrons story by #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Marie Moning, marvelously adapted into a full-color graphic novel by writer David Lawrence and illustrator Al Rio
In Fever Moon, we meet the most ancient and deadly Unseelie ever created, the Fear Dorcha. For eons, he’s traveled worlds with the Unseelie king, leaving behind him a path of mutilation and destruction. Now he’s hunting Dublin, and no one Mac loves is safe.
Dublin is a war zone. The walls between humans and Fae are down. A third of the world’s population is dead and chaos reigns. Imprisoned over half a million years ago, the Unseelie are free and each one Mac meets is worse than the last. Human weapons don’t stand a chance against them.
With a blood moon hanging low over the city, something dark and sinister begins to hunt the streets of Temple Bar, choosing its victims by targeting those closest to Mac. Armed only with the Spear of Destiny and Jericho Barrons, she must face her most terrifying enemy yet.
I am a huge fan of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series, I mean just look at my avi. She's wearing a Mac Halo. But when I heard about Fever Moon being a graphic novel I was a little on the fence about reading it. Why? Because I didn’t want a face to Jericho Barrons. I knew that no matter how good the artwork would be that he would not fit my picture. And I was right.
Yes the artwork is awesome but is it how I pictured Mac, JZB or even Danni… NO. I had to get over that and just dig into the story itself.
Fever Moon is not my 1st graphic novel. I’ve read a few Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Anita Blake and I liked them. But if you have never read one before you might be a little put off. But if you are a Fever fan you should at least take a look at it in your local bookstore. Would you miss anything by not reading it? No I don’t believe so but it was a nice side story to Shadowfever. It gave me the JZB fix was I looking for and it’s made me want to re-read the whole series all over again.
